Smart Home and Intranet of Things

When I started to be busy with the “Internet of Things”, I was faced with the problem that it was very difficult to filter out from the countless available information which are relevant for me. There were hardly any recommendation, planning assistance or extensive experience reports.

Therefore, I would like to present on the following pages my own smarthome and share my experiences. It is primarily intended to serve as a planning aid and inspiration for people who are planning similar and still undecided regarding the used technologies and their application. Various sub-projects about infrastructure, home and garden are presented and described with examples and pictures. All used software and configuration files can be downloaded as open source and used for your own projects.

I chose the name “Intranet of Things” to illustrate the importance of security in this area.

I hope that this site helps to drive your own smart home project forward. Even if it looks very extensive at first glance, you should not be put off by it. It is worth it!

And be aware, english is not my native language. Feel free to give me some hints how to improve my translations.
